MUSIC OF THE REVOLUTION: FOR WHOM THE BELL TOLLS?

It is difficult to identify why Maidan took a violent, military turn. Among the main possible reasons we might first note the inability of three opposition leaders (namely Vitaliy Klychko, Arseniy Yatsenyuk, and Oleh Tyahnybok) to settle on just one Maidan leader, and the absence of any visible, concrete accession to the demands of the protesters by the authorities.

TOLERANCE AND TRUST Reflections on Some Scandinavian Values and Experiences

“Weber talks of a Tischgemeinschaft, where you can eat and drink and pray. At the table people, or rather the male population, got to know each other, have faith in one another. Coming together, sharing bread and views, wine and troubles, without risk of being beaten, but with the prospect of enhancing one’s knowledge and wellbeing — what is this, if not tolerance? It wouldn’t be totally wrong to see an Eranos conference as a Weberian Tischgemeinschaft.".
